Easy Halloween Sensory Tray
It’s almost spooky season so I’m starting to get some spooky fun together! I’m not a huge fan of creepy and scary so I like to keep things only a tad spooky. Sensory trays are easy to put together with things you already have in your home! They are a huge hit with my littles and provide such great learning fun for them. I love to get together themed trays throughout the seasons and holiday to change things up. Today I am sharing how I made this easy halloween sensory tray made up of things I already had at home so make sure to scroll down or save it for later!
What You’ll Need
Sensory bins can be as simple or complex as you make them. My kids love them regardless of how much is in them they just want to ‘play’. There are a few basic things that you’ll need: Tray or container, filler and items.
I used dried black beans for this easy halloween sensory tray since that is what I already had in my pantry but rice, corn kernals, beans, sand or ground up cereal are also great options. Just keep in mind the ages so there are no choking hazards!
You’ll want to use some items inside your sensory tray. I printed and cut out these ghosts for my son to practice his numbers 1-10. Grab your FREE printable set here.
Tray or Container
I used a small wooden tray that we had from a stamp set but you could use a clear storage container, food container, or anything with an edge to contain all the contents.
Let’s Make It!
Print FREE Ghost Counting Sheet
Print out my FREE Ghost Counting Sheet. I had my little one trace the numbers 1-10 since that is what we are working on but there is a blank ghost sheet if you little one can already write numbers 1-10 on their own.
Cut out the ghosts for them to use in this easy halloween sensory bin.
Fill your tray with your filler, I used black beans. Add in your ghosts and other items.
Practice counting, tracing and let your little one learn through play with this easy halloween sensory bin!
